New Energy and Industrial Technology Development Organization (NEDO)

NEDO will hold the “Japan Virtual Robotics Challenge (JVRC)” at Makuhari Messe in Chiba City from Wednesday, October 7th through Saturday, October 10th, 2015.

The JVRC is a competition for the computer simulation of disaster response robots and will be held as part of “the International R&D and Demonstration Project in Environment and Medical Device Sector / the International R&D and Demonstration Project on Robotics Field / the R&D on Disaster Response Robot (USA)”.

In the competition, robot models being developed through NEDO projects as well as independently-developed robot models will compete using the robot simulator “Choreonoid” to see how many work tasks associated with disaster sites they can complete.

* Choreonoid:
Choreonoid is an integrated robotics GUI environment, which allows users to add their own functions based on various basic robotics functions. Please visit the JVRC website for more information.
